State education officials have "egg on our face" after misspelling of "Kentucky"

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- This is a reminder to always use spellcheck.

The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority sent out books to every junior in the state, outlining what they need to know while preparing for college.

There's only one small problem: the word "Kentucky" is misspelled on the spine of the book. The photos at right were provided by viewer Liz Palmer.

We talked with Erin Klarer with KHEAA. She tells us several schools, parents, and even state officials have let them know about the mistake, but to reprint and redistribute them would cost about $70,000, so they opted to just - in her words - "deal with the egg on our face."

The books are free to every junior in Kentucky and include financial aid applications and details on admissions for colleges.
